Yosemite Trip


Recommended Posts

My Family will be going to Yosemite During Spring break (Late March-Early April) And I want some tips on how to find these birds

1. Dipper, always Dipper, I will never find one, because I am cursed but still, Dipper.

2. Sooty Grouse, I can't find anything online about when Sootys Boom but I hope it's in early spring 

3. Hermit and Orange-crowned Warblers, it's too early for them but I can hope. 

4. Sapsuckers that are not holes

5. American Kestrel, these should be at Mono Lake plus they're cute

6. Canyon Wren

7. Wilsons Snipe at Mono

8. Rufous Hummer

Dipper - Check along the Merced River in Yosemite Valley.

Sooty Grouse - Listen for them in the mountains around Yosemite Valley.

Hermit Warbler - Yosemite Valley.

Orange-crowned Warbler - good luck...

Red-breasted Sapsucker - Yosemite Valley and Mono Lake County Park.

Williamson's Sapsucker - It is a little out of the way, but see if you can go to Owen's River Rd. Look for them in the first mile of road.

American Kestrel - Easy at Mono.

Canyon Wren - Yosemite Valley.

Wilson's Snipe - Check the county park and Dechambeau Ponds.

Rufous Hummer - Good luck on this one, There are some reports for Mono City, but it looks like they might be on someone's private feeder.

Good Luck!
